A Civilization to Stand the Test of Time

A Civilization to Stand the Test of Time

In this game, you will be voting and expressing your opinion of what our civilization will do. I am playing this within Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword, with the mod called Rise of Mankind. There will be 25 civilizations including ours, all of which will be run by me. I will write the talks and such between the various civilizations and ours, weaving a story using Civ as the representation, as well as creating stories within our civilization for various reasons. Various non-Civilization mechanics will be used by me, such as one unit per square, limits on military size based on population, number of strategic resources limiting the amount of units that can exist that use that resource, and others. These have yet to be set entirely in stone.

Game Mechanics(Subject to Change)

1 Military Unit per Square
1 Population supports 1 Military Unit
1 Resource supports 20 Units that Use It

Charismatic-Financial is the only way to be. All other Civs are poor and ignorant.

Agressive-Charismatic. Mafia style. I assume you'll be taking some artistic liberties?

Try to vote in the poll if you can, Lush, it makes it easier on me. In fact, I'll vote for you.

What do you mean by artistic liberties? I'll be using the game as a basis for the story and such, among other things. The only thing out of my control are the barbarians.

Yay! "Rise of Mankind"! I suggest you use "A New Dawn" which is a modmod for "Rise of Mankind". Or even my modmodmod on a mod called "HAND" which stands for "Hydro's A New Dawn". It is a mod for both of them.

In short even if you don't use my mod you really need to use "A New Dawn"  if you want to experience the full potential of " Rise of Mankind".

I know this will sound dumb, but I picked Nomad.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Our Most Glorious Leader!

For the seconds round of civilization creation is the leader selection, but before we can select leaders, we must find which ones are preferred. The priorities for traits are;

1. Scientific
2. Charismatic
3. Philosophical
4/5. Aggressive/Seafaring
6/7. Financial/Industrious

Remember, not all trait combinations exist. Charismatic/Scientific doesn't exist, for instance. Now, to find the top leaders, I gave points to the various leaders based on priority. First priority earned them five points, second earned them four points, and so on. Now, the list of top leaders is as such;

1. Pericles (Scientific/Philosophical) 8 Points
2. Sejong (Scientific/Philosophical) 8 Points
3. Bismarck(Scientific/Aggressive) 7 Points
4. Henry VII (Scientific/Industrious) 6 Points
5. Mansa Musa (Scientific/Financial) 6 Points
6. Boudica (Charismatic/Aggressive) 6 Points
7. Alexander (Philosophical/Aggressive) 5 Points

The next vote will be on which leader we should use. However, since Pericles and Sejong have only aesthetic differences, they will be represented together, and if they win, a second vote between the two will be taken.

Are you having leaders separate than the civilization? Or if we say pick Pericles we will be the Greeks?

Yes, leaders are separate from civilizations. I'm still not sure how to run the Civ vote, seeing as how there are so many. I'm thinking we'll first vote for civs categorized as best for the Ancient/Medieval/Modern/Future etc eras.

I looked into it more, and as interesting as A New Dawn is, there seem to be issues with it, and I don't use torrents to download RoM 1.92. So we'll just be playing with 1.91, which should be sufficient anyway...
